Innocan Pharma Files PCT Patent Application for Diabetic Symptoms
Herzliya, Israel and Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 29, 2022) - Innocan Pharma Corporation (CSE: INNO) (FSE: IP4) (OTCQB: INNPF) (the "Company" or "Innocan") is pleased to announce that it has filed a new patent application (PCT) entitled "compositions for treatment of diabetic symptoms", claiming priority from an earlier US provisional patent application.
This application contributes to Innocan's continued expansion of its health and wellness intellectual property portfolio of 14 patent families. The application will ultimately result in more comprehensive international protection for the Company's intellectual property, including in the United States and the European Union, among other places.
Diabetes is a condition associated with the body's production or use of insulin, which can have implications for circulation. According to data from the International Diabetes Federation, 537 million people-approximately 10% of all people aged 20-79 in the world-were living with diabetes as of 2021. This number is expected to increase to 643 million by 2030 and to 783 million by 2045.
Innocan's PCT involves a cannabinoid-based composition which can be used to improve circulation and thereby treat ailments associated with diabetes.
The global creams and lotions for diabetic foot care market alone was valued at US$334.66 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.7% during the 2020-2029.

"Millions of people are suffering from diabetes, and the implications of the disease. We are determined to bring our proprietary solution to the market in order to address these issues and help ease the pain of those suffering," said Innocan CEO, Iris Bincovich.
Innocan is a pharmaceutical technology company that focuses on the development of several drug delivery platforms containing CBD. Innocan Pharma and Ramot at Tel Aviv University are collaborating on a new, revolutionary exosome-based technology that targets both central nervous system (CNS) indications and the COVID-19 Corona Virus using CBD. CBD-loaded exosomes hold the potential to help in the recovery of infected lung cells. This product, which is expected to be administered by inhalation, will be tested against a variety of lung infections.
Innocan Pharma signed a worldwide exclusive license agreement with Yissum, the commercial arm of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to develop a CBD drug delivery platform based on a unique-controlled release liposome to be administered by injection. Innocan Israel plans, together with Professor Barenholz, to test the liposome platform on several potential conditions. Innocan Israel is also working on a dermal product that integrates CBD with other pharmaceutical ingredients as well as the development and sale of CBD-integrated pharmaceuticals, including, but not limited to, topical treatments for the relief of psoriasis symptoms as well as the treatment of muscle pain and rheumatic pain. The founders and officers of Innocan Pharma Ltd. each have commercially successful track records in the pharmaceutical and technology sectors in Israel and globally.
